I have recently found out that one of my ggrandparents are from Halifax NC. His name was James Evans. I looked at the death record for his son Claude Smith Evans through ancestry.com. Claude's parents were listed as James Evans and Mattie Griggs. Underneath their names listed Halifax, NC.
My dad and his family always say that the Evans are from GA. However, I don't see any suggestions that this is true. His wife may have been from GA considering there are alot of Griggs families on the census.
Since I live in NC, it is easier for me to research the Evans side here instead of going to GA to research the Griggs side. Can anyone here do a lookup on James Evans? I hope that this is not too much to ask. Also, if anyone here is related to the Evans, it would be nice to hear from you. Thanks.
